Red by Noldofinve Red by Noldofinve
Crimson Lord Argel Tal and Cyrene Valantion. Inspired by some extracts from the wonderful novel by A. Dembski-Bowden "The First Heretic" (yay, I wish there would be several more chapters about those two).
About 3 hours, hope to finish it one day.

Well, guys, here is a small update. I'm very grateful to those who wrote me and showed a post in a blog of Aaron Dembski-Bowden. That was a great wow-wow-wow-surprise. :)
And this... aarondembskibowden.wordpress.c…
I'm really happy because I got a biggest reward an artist can have. Especially in case of Cyrene and Argel Tal who became my favourite characters from the very begining of the novel.

Hey! I'm reading this awesome novel and I was looking for a drawing of Cyrene. I was surprised because this was the only one I found, so I decided to make my own fanart too. I hope you take an eye on it, and tell me what you think, they're very different, but everyone has a different way to imagine characters.

By the way, I really like your drawing and its variations. I like the way you used the brushes and colours, fantastic work!

Here is mine: Click here

See you!

Oh Lord... My favorite "Horus Heresy" character, Argel Tal...
He looks so human in your piece, I almost expect him to lend his hand towards Cyrene...
First time EVER I am rendered silent by ANY artwork... Wonderful job here

Thank you very much for the kind words. I like this character too. Actually that novel greatly staggered me and I couldn't keep myself from drawing something to describe my emotions.

Thought I'd point out as well that ADB is also using the middle piece as his avatar on B&C if you didn't know.

Этот роман Дембски-Боудена меня очень зацепил. Не в последнюю очередь благодаря трогательным отношениям Аргела Тала и Кирены.

Fantastic work! Is the Space Marine a Word Bearer? He feels very emotional behind the helmet.
(i'm planning to start a Word Bearer army :D and also Dark Angels)

Noldofinve Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yes, this is Argel Tal, one of Word Bearers in A. Dembski-Bowden's novel "The First Heretic".
Are you going to start pre-Heresy or later Word Bearers army?

:iconfmralchemist:
fmralchemist Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2012
Oh interesting! I like the idea that the Word Bearers considered the Emperor a God before anyone else (but turned their backs to chaos around the time he became a corpse lol or was it before?)

I currently painted a later Heresy, because I like how they look in red and silver. In the begining he was an Alfa Legion, because I really like their backstory, the fact they appearently still do everything for the Emperor, whether it's true or just a rumour I like the idea. But then I repainted him because I like red haha.

I also painted 3 loyal Dark Angels, my favourite chapter!!

The Word Bearers turned to Chaos when the Emperor found out they were worshiping him, something he didn't want because it apparently creates Chaos gods, and sent the Ultramarines to toast the Word Bearers homeworld. Hence why those two legions hate each other. Some argue this is also where the seeds of the Heresy started. :)

Really good sources for pre-Heresy info are the books and lexicanum.com (lexicanum has both fantasy and 40k warhammer info).

Word Bearers, Dark Angels and Alpha Legion are very interesting legions for me :D

Так вот кто автор... восхитительная по атмосфере картина, йеп. Можно списать часть благоговения на то, что ваш покорный - тот еще фанат Несущих Слово, но... может, мнение придирчивого фана, коим никогда ничего не по вкусу, стоит даже больше. Спасибо за этот чудесный арт.
